On the Day Services
I have been in the industry for 15 years but am always updating my training and products with the latest on the market! I have completed lots of training such as The prestigious DFMA makeup school and Southern School of Beauty where I have trained with some of the top makeup artists in the country. I offer a relaxed and calm trial, listening to what the bride wants and helping to create a beautiful look, you but at your best best! I don't believe in trying to change a brides face, you still want your fiancé to recognise you! I work with the bride at the trial to achieve this, whether a bride want a natural or a dramatic look. I am proud that I have many recommendations from previous clients. Many clients return as previous bridesmaids for when it's their big day as a bride! Sometimes I meet bridesmaids 2 or 3 times for various difffernt family weddings before it's their big day! This is the biggest compliment of all to me! I love my job and am passionate about making clients look beautiful and feel beautiful!

What about your business are you most proud of?
Recommendation to me always makes me feel so proud. To do a makeover on a bridesmaid then to be rebooked for her wedding a few years later means so much to me.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
When booking professionals for your wedding its best not to be guided too much by who is the cheapest as actually its better to book people that you are going to get on well with on your special day. So choose professionals that you feel you can trust and that you can connect with.
What do you love most about your job?
No wedding or bride is ever the same so i love the variety and being part of so many different special days.
What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?
Look after your skin with a good cleansing routine as makeup is only as good as the skin underneath. I can offer tips on this at the trial!
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
I understand it's a nerve wracking day full of so many different emotions. I always take my time with the bride and whilst having makeup done it's their time to just sit down and relax. People always comment how calm I am so must be doing something right! I've been doing weddings for many years and have encountered many last minute panics or disasters such as dresses breaking, shoes not fitting and bridesmaids opening champagne bottles too close to their chins (causing major bruising!) So not much fazes me and if i can help with last min glitches i will happily do so.
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
I have a secret tip to help brides from getting too tearful walking down the aisle and that is to put their tongue in the roof of the mouth to stop the tears! There i have said it now so even if you don't choose me then remember that tip ;o)
